resident Donald Trump and Vice President Joe Biden met in the second and final debate ahead of the Nov. 3 election Thursday night, with the president seeking to pin down Biden on recent corruption allegations.
NBC News held the debate in Nashville, Tennessee, with reporter Kristen Welker moderating. The debate was the first in which each candidate was muted for the duration of his opponents allotted two minute response time for each question. The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) resorted to the measure after the first debate featuring Trump and Biden routinely talking over one another.
Trump and Biden were more civil throughout the debate, with the president adopting a markedly more reserved tone and offering more deference to Welker than he did the previous moderator, Fox News Chris Wallace. Welker led the candidates through the issues with confidence, allowing both to broach new topics but keeping the back-and-forth in check.
The debate came following a report by the New York Post alleging Biden both knew of and participated in his son Hunter Bidens business dealings overseas. While Trump has worked to put the issue center stage since the news broke last week, Biden, social media platforms, and many outlets have sought to bury the story.
While the emails at the center of the allegations lacked strong verification since their initial publication last week, one of Hunter Bidens business associates, Tony Bobulinksi, said that the allegations that Joe Biden benefitted monetarily from his sons business dealings in China were true.
Bidens campaign released a statement denying Bobulinskis allegations minutes before the debate.
Seems important to PA, a critical state!
While the emails at the center of the allegations lacked strong verification...
The MSM hedges its bets and now wants not verification, but strong verification , whatever that is.
I know it’s too much to expect, but after the total fiasco of allowing the outrageously biased and phony Debate Commission to set up President Tump in every one of these carnival sideshows, any future debates should be removed from their purview.
HUGE victory for President Trump last nite — everyone sees Biden or what he is - a loser..
I voted yesterday - VOTED TRMUMP/PENCE 2020 !!!
It seemed that Biden got a lot more talking time than Trump.
Anybody know the numbers?
“Purview”, I like that word.
And yes there should be no more “debates” and the debates commission should be abolished.
It is totally incapable of moderating a fair and balanced debate. Every single “moderator” from the ridiculous commission has been a hard core far left Dem activist.
No Republicans should ever again agree to this nonsense.
It’s been verified beyond any doubt.
That is not even an issue.
Let’s be clear — that was a Comcast leash.
leash was for Trump to protect bye den
Biden also said he was doing to bail out the big Dem cities.
